Good dvd-cd burners for my Linux system
I wonder what are models and makes of good internal SATA or IDE DVD-CD burners. I'd like to get one for my desktop tower since I've only had CD burners before. For burning, I use k3b and I'd be doing more CD burning than DVD burning but would also use the burner to watch a DVD movie now and then.
I'd prefer one that isn't too fussy about media. In other words, I'd be happy to have one that takes and plays nicely with commonly found media, rather than with exotic, hard-to-find media. And a burner that handles a good range of the various DVD formats would be nice too.
I don't need LightScribe because I figure it will only work for Windows users. Yes or No? [But does Linux have some package that lets this LightScribing work?]
[My OS is MEPIS 8.5, a Debian-based OS which uses Synaptic for package downloading and installation.]
Tell me what good luck you've had with ____ burner and tell what makes/models to avoid.
